Location: West Coast TAS

Multiple Permanent Full Time and Part time Positions at the West Coast District Hospital.

Tas­man­ian Health Ser­vice – West Coast Dis­trict Hospital

To be Tas­man­ian is to val­ue qual­i­ty over quan­ti­ty. We cre­ate, pre­serve, and pro­tect the unusu­al. With qui­et con­fi­dence, with pas­sion and per­se­ver­ance, we pur­sue the extraordinary.

You could be a Reg­is­tered Nurse any­where in the world. What’s dif­fer­ent about Tas­ma­nia is our cul­ture and our lifestyle, our con­nec­tion to our col­leagues and patients, and the com­mu­ni­ty encour­ages suc­cess. Our remote­ness helps dri­ve a cul­ture of inven­tion and human con­nec­tion, which feels both old fash­ioned and… like the only future worth pur­su­ing. Here you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to breath-tak­ing coast­lines, Nation­al Parks or award-win­ning fresh pro­duce – all right on your doorstep. After a hard day at work, you don’t have to sit in a car for an hour. You can wan­der along the riv­er or put on your boots and tell it to a moun­tain.

Our West Coast Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal is a place where peo­ple from across the car­ing pro­fes­sions come togeth­er to serve our com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers in Queen­stown and the sur­round­ing areas. We pro­vide care through­out the patient jour­ney, from the Emer­gency First Response Unit, through to Res­i­den­tial Aged Care and Com­mu­ni­ty Health ser­vices. You will work with­in a close-knit mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary care team, using your skills and expe­ri­ence to pro­vide evi­dence-informed services.

Here, you are encour­aged to be your authen­tic self, to pur­sue your pas­sions, and to bring your clin­i­cal and world knowl­edge to the table to con­tribute to mak­ing our team one that punch­es above its weight with pro­gres­sive and mean­ing­ful care.

We are small enough in Tas­ma­nia for you to shape and influ­ence your work and make a real dif­fer­ence every day. Yet we are big enough for you to feel part of some­thing impor­tant, some­where you can belong and be sur­round­ed by diver­si­ty, inno­va­tion, and friend­ships. We’ll look after you from the very begin­ning, ensure you are ful­ly induct­ed and wel­comed into our team and cul­ture. We’ll invest in your growth, with time, resources, and expert col­leagues avail­able to help fos­ter your development.

Some­thing is hap­pen­ing here, and you’re invit­ed to be part of it..
